I would say it has to be Big Brother contestants. Who could forget Shahbaz and Sam this year, or Frederico, Lynn and Jason for series past. And lets not forget Cameron Stout who won the series that noone watched.

I have to go the sentimental route and say that my grandparents are first and whisky second. Of course, the ancient origin of the family and of whisky likely goes beyond Scotland. However, deep-fried haggis and deep-fried Mars bars I believe to be true Scottish originals, so perhaps they should be number one :wink:

My students at school keep on telling me:
Franz Ferdinand
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franz_Ferdinand_%28band%29

After listening to them I’ve got the strong feeling I would’ve liked them as well back in 75/76...

contrived, stylised an regurgatated but in all fairness better than most out there......

My problem with music these days is it all seems to be done before.

Are people still making music? I hadn't noticed. I turned the radio off in 1982.

Nope. It's all computers. A bit like Caol Ila.

Caol Ila is state-of-the-art for the mid 1970's...no computers. One of the big L's on the south shore uses them, though. Can't say it troubles me much.
